Moving along, neither Denver or Phoenix are PT cities. They are both car cities. And there is no need to pretend opposite, get a car. If PT is a must, both Denver and Phoenix are not for you. And marginal value one adds over the other in this regard is really too marginal to put into consideration.
In today's world, the layout of certain cities make it virtually impossible to survive without a car. DFW, for instance is way too spread out for a person to get around effectively without a vehicle.

To the OP, if you don't mind snowy winters then I'd go with Denver.
Well I'm from California, but I've always liked four seasons type weather. I think Denver would be nice in the winter, some place like Minnesota would probably be too much for me though.

That's so disappointing to me. I'm from LA suburbs so I have to deal with terrible traffic every day. I'm going to community college and it takes me 1 hour to get there and it's only 11 miles away. I'm not joking.
And that's in the burbs, it's not even that close to LA proper actually. I just find living with a car to be such a hassle and pain. But I guess since I'm used to LA traffic, other cities won't seem as bad, right? Right?
